Genshin Impact 2.8 Tier List - All Characters Ranked

Genshin Impact has over 50 characters, and selecting the best ones for the party can be confusing. So, here is the latest tier list to make your job easier.
Genshin Impact 2.8 Tier List - All Characters Ranked

Genshin Impact 2.8 update has been released officially bringing a new character Heizou into the game along with Kazuha, Klee, and Yoimiya banner reruns. With that, Travelers have come up with new team compositions including these characters.

The total count of Genshin Impact characters has now reached 53 and while some of them are pretty strong, the others require constellations to reach the top tier, while some of them are just not good enough to be included.

Thus, we have created a tier list for you so that you can decide which characters you want in your party.

The characters in the tier list are listed under five levels explained as follows:

  • SS-Tier: The best characters in the game, taking into account the current metagame.
  • S-Tier: Characters that are remarkable and very good, useful for whatever situation you face.
  • A-Tier: Good characters who can balance our team if we don't have the best.
  • B-Tier: Not-so-bad characters, but they should be replaced by better ones as soon as you get the chance to do so.
  • C-Tier: The ones you must avoid, only for emergency use or if you don't have a character to fill in a specific role.
